Hosted in EY’s Cork office, “Practical Applications of AI and Machine Learning” is the second in our 2020 Inspire series for Munster.

As practitioners, we often get caught up in the terminology and heavy detail when it comes to AI and Machine Learning. It can be easy to forget the impact these technologies have on everyday life, down to when you leave your house for the bus, or your gas and electricity bill and savings. The work analytics practitioners do in AI and Machine Learning has an impact on the lives of every user. “Practical Applications of AI and Machine Learning” will explore different real-world use cases of AI and Machine Learning including UtilityWave and smart metering.
